"In an all-out effort to cash in on this potential market, Edison Electric has pulled out all the stops in a gigantic All-Electric Kitchen Program. Almost every advertising medium is being used — radio spot announcements, newspapers, magazines, plan books, a 'Kitchenizer's Digest' of pertinent articles from women's magazines, outdoor posters, window display cards, envelope inserts, truck posters — and, of course, a 16mm motion picture." [The Constant Bride, produced by Wilding Picture Productions] (Business Screen, May 1949).

"You Just Give Me The Reds!"
Very very very funny, highly sexist, and rather curiously homoerotic tale of Judy Adams, a tomboy who discovers his brother's 'friend' (wink wink nudge nudge) Alexander Phipps and her attempts to woo him to almost no avail except when, of course, she cooks for him. After all, isn't that what women are only good for? Mom hardly leaves the kitchen and laundry when all she can talk about is how wonderful her appliances are. Dad just sits back with his pipe, and Judy rather hilariously speaks total jive talk (some of which I'm not entirely sure what it means) (and neither does the rest of the cast) Meanwhile, her brother and his friend are off "to take a shower" because Alex's a 'woman hater'..
Total MUST SEE on this site!
